Traditional drug discovery paradigms
In this module, David Wild discusses the major epochs in drug discovery since the first recorded pharmacies in Baghdad around 754. Specifically the long empirical epoch, and the much more recent rational and big experiment (scaled-up rational) epochs. The process by which new drugs are found and developed in the rational approach is described, and students are introduced to some of the concerns that this approach has "run out of steam"
